Hello my friendly (blog) rollers, Just a bit of an update. My book America Divine: Travels in the Hidden South is featured in Books from our Backyard, the Queensland Writers Centre's overview of books written by queensland authors in 2011. On another front, I've recently been getting into writing book reviews. Book reviews are not easy things to write and so I'm not great at it yet. Recently, two of my reviews appeared on Angela Meyer's Literaryminded blog. Angela is THE rising star of Australian literary criticism and a really good writer to boot. Check out my reviews of Jeanette Winterson's Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? and the first edition of the new journal Southpaw and then read some of Angela's reviews. You won't regret it. Cheers, ciao, thanks a lot, Dallas.
